Deputies: Woman cut with scissors during fight on Wrightsboro Road

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - One woman cut another woman with scissors during a fight in the parking lot of a shopping center on Wrightsboro Road Thursday afternoon, according to the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to Richmond Plaza Shopping Center across from Augusta Mall around noon.

Opha Young and Shela White got into a fight after one of them made a comment about the other one's adult child, said Sgt. Michael McDaniel with the sheriff's office. While they were fighting on the ground, Young cut White's cheek with a pair of scissors.

Young fled the scene and was picked up in the parking lot of the Advance Auto Parts at Wrightsboro Road and Barton Chapel Road, McDaniel said. The sheriff's office is planning to get a warrant to charge Young with battery.

White was treated at the scene.
